We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Mighty Peace Coffee, a woman-and-minority owned company, to bring you Mapendo Women's Lot.
This current harvest is similar to the last one we offered in late 2021 with a bright, zingy aroma and brown sugar sweetness. We're also noticing delicate notes of hibiscus and melon.
Mighty Peace is built upon three pillars of values: high labor standards & Fair-Trade certifications, environmental sustainability and partnering with local, nationals and international agencies.
Mapendo, Swahili for “love,” is farmed in 16 separate lots by 4,200 farmers, nearly 40% of whom are women. Mapendo farmers produce fully washed coffee that has been certified Fair Trade Organic (FTO) since 2009. There are 3 washing stations, including one large and two mini washing stations. A fourth station is under construction along with a modern lab for cupping and quality control.
